Another Mom update December 20, 2007Posted by davegoblog in Family, Personal.
Well, my Mom continues on the mend from her seventh and eighth surgeries, which were about three weeks ago. No fistula has formed as the incision has been healing. That is good and welcomed news since the development of a fistula has been the main complication of recovery from her previous operations. If one does not form this time, then that would allow her to not be constantly attached to an ostomy pouch and the problems with that. She still has a long road ahead of her, but this is an important step.
I caught some flak from Mom at Thanksgiving because I had posted a birthday picture of her in the hospital this year. I told her it was either that photo or one from when she had a perm. Lucky for me I couldn’t find that one, but I did include the above shot of her and a bottle of Iron City Lager. /duck
My Mom will be spending Christmas in the hospital next week, so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as you celebrate. Also, you can send her a free card via the Lehigh Valley Hospital site. Contact me for her new room number, which you’ll need.
